Even though it is a policy at Howe not
to discriminate on the basis of race, color,
religion, national origin, age, sex, or
disability, many students complied with this
"Color doesn't matter to me, I choose
my friends based on their personalities!"

After interviewing a variety of races.
it was obvious that we are all a lot alike!
We all have a lot of the same hobbies
and interests, but sometimes we do
things in different ways!
It is easy to judge someone based

When you think of the yearbook, all you think
about is signing yearbooks and looking at pictures.
You never think of the actual work that is involved
The yearbook is composed of pictures, stories, side-
stories, advertisements, and hard work Without the
help of the yearbook staff, you could never get a
Hornet's perspective of our school! So many thanks
go out to the entire yearbook staff, and a special
thanks to Mrs. Ajayi for spending her free time
helping us create the best yearbook yet! ■
It's Not Just Pictures, Genius!
Putting together a yearbook isn't all fun and games, it's hard
work!!! The yearbook staff works under the heavy pressure of
strict deadlines. They attend games after school to take pictures,
they randomly interview people, and they write and edit stories,
and spend time creating wonderful layouts!

We had two cultural education clubs Spanish Club and German
Club. In which students learned about the culture of Mexico, South
America and Germany.
The Spanish Club had the opportunity to exchange ten selected
student to go to Mexico and live with a family for two weeks in
which they learned more of the culture first hand. As a school, we
also learned a lot when the students from Mexico came to Howe for
two weeks. After school, the Spanish club made pihatas, Mexican
flowers (for the day of the dead), and had an Easter Egg Hunt in
which the egg shells were filled with confetti (which is a tradition in
Mexico). They learned how to dance to many type of Latin music.
Both, clubs along with their classes went to the international festival.
The German Club dived into the culture by having their own
Oktoberfest (Bavarian Traditional Festival). About 30 students showed
up to feast on Bratwursts and Sauerkraut! German students also
worked extremely hard during the summer to raise money! They
ended up working two car washes and raised quite a bit toward their
Spring trip to Germany! Lilly Salas

What are they doing?.
Empathy is defined as identification with and understanding of another's
situation, feelings, and motives. When you put belly behind the word empathy,
it takes on a whole new meaning. In Child Development Class, students had
the chance to get a feel for how it physically felt to be pregnant.
Students wore glasses that contorted their vision and displayed them
being intoxicated. They discussed the dangers of alcoholism or the abuse of
any substances while pregnant. That was a very valuable and educational
course. After this brief presentation, they discovered that none of the
students were ready to bear children. Kevina Lyons
I That's right I What's better than getting a grade for something that's fun to do
anyway? Students showed great interest in art as they were able to re-create objects
either by drawing in 2-D art or building in 3-D art, ceramics or industrial technology!
I like art because it is fun, the projects are
cool, and I like to experiment with different
colors." -Shelley Welch
"Art shows how people are feeling and
sometimes it is just for fun but I like how
many different forms there are!" -Cierra Price
"My whole life, people have always asked me the
same thing, 'How do you draw like that?' I do the
same thing everyone else does... I just copy what
see onto the paper. I guess it just comes more
naturally to some people."

■WHAT? STAY AFTER SCHOOL?
A lot of students would say it is crazy to stay after school. But
what if school became a big YMCA once the 2:30 busses pulled
away? That would be hot!
In essence, that is what happened! Employees from the YMCA
came to our school and used their programs and supplies to give
hornets a great after school program!
This was a time when students had the opportunity to
socialize, play games, join a dance team, go on field trips, watch
new movies and even receive free tutoring!
"YMCA is cool because I get to
hang out with friends after school,
and we go on field trips!"

Wizard of Oz"
Some students were nervous and shaky while others
were trying to get dressed and put make-up on. Others
got their hair done and did other little touch ups that
needed to be done. After the play everybody felt relieved.
There are things in drama that are hard, and
things that are easy. Drama students do plays,
and sometimes learn new skills by watching
actors perform in popular movies. The goal is to
engage the audiences by performing well
enough to make people in the crowd feel like
they are actually a character in the story.
The Wizard of OZ was the first play of the year
and it turned out to be exciting! When asked,
"Why is drama a fun class?", Chloe Dietz
responded, "Because we work very hard on our
plays and everyone gets to watch us perform
So, what made this play such a success?
J enna Crockett replied, "Practice, Practice, and
more Practice". The only thing that needed to be
improved was voice projection. In the end it all
turned out great! The students had a great time
with this play and already plarining for the next
one. Stay tuned?!!!

The National Guard (far left) and several other
outside organizations, businesses, and even celebrities
joined in to help in whatever way they could.
Howe's students, in the JROTC, also helped by
raising money during sports events. Katrina's strong
winds tore some strings and knocked us down, but we
knew that coming together and using the
tools we had to help others would
make us stronger as a whole.
Because, when we can get back on

The sophomore class flew into their second year
of high school with the joy of no longer being the
unexperienced freshman. However, they had to buckle
down with harder classes, immediately take the G.Q.E.
and start focusing on their future.
Although some students are still taking high
school as a joke, others like Lilly Salas, are taking every
opportunity to make this year a great success! "Math

G.Q.E. testing was also a big thing this

straight! The results of the G.Q.E. tests are a
great reflection of just how prepared
sophomores are. To move forward, Keondra
Dukes hopes that her fellow sophomores
"realize that one day they will run the world by
themselves and will not be kids forever." It only
takes one person to make a difference, so lets

To be able to have someone to call
your friend forever, you need somebody to
trust! A friend is a person that is there for you
no matter what! You are able to tell them
anything and they will be there to support
you! Friends don't talk about you behind your
back or treat you with disrespect.
A friend is someone who is loyal to
you and you are loyal to them in return. If
you've got someone who respects those
values and more, then you've got a great

MORE games, played as a team, and had fun doing what
they did best-hit Players such as Chris Griff en and Kendal
Downing gave their all and were voted most improved by their
teammates. "Griffen brought it, he was a sophomore starting
on varsity with way more confidence than last year!" says
Nigel Foreman. Everyone agreed that there was room for
improvement, but they were happy for what they accomplished!

"Bump it up" with our volleyball
team who had determination.
They conquered the nets with
a 6-2 season!
Meagan Morgan said, "They
had A good strong team".
Heather Morgan, a senior
player said, "We tried our very
best even if the team thought
we wouldn't win".
Our girls had some big
challenges as they worked
through the transition of
getting a new coach mid
season. One of the girls
Danielle Corpuz said," We did
great but lacked a huge part of
our team... a Varsity Coach"!!!
Even through the bumps and
bruises, the team worked great
and had a wonderful season
while bumping up the heat
and playing VOLLEY BALL!!!!!
"Why do we keep hearing about the basketball and
football teams, but not a peep or a blink went out to our

All players on the team
cooperated and played to win.
Even though the team didn't
have enough players to finish out
the season, they still played well
and showed great
Players had different reasons
for not sticking with the team.
Lilly Salas said, "It was cliff iclut to
balance the sports schedule with
all of my academic
involvements." Others, like
Hillary Stephenson and Ashley
llrookholder said they stopped
playing for personal reasons.
The team learned a lot from this
challenging season, and believe
that the regret of not finishing
the season will drive them to
work hard and become a better
Now Basketball is
my Favorite Sport,
I like the way it dribble up
and down the court.
Basketball is a very entertaining
sport AVe have five boys
basketball teams: 6th grade, 7th

have worked very hard this year.
Our 6th grade team went

our freshman team worked very
hard to improve academically!

basketball team had a good season. The girls practiced hard to get ready for
their games and played like a team! They had great sportsmanship and helped
each other develop their skills further in preparation for High School ball!
Who said cheerleading
Isn't a sport?
Well whoever said it really
didn't know what they were
talking about. "When you have to
yell, jump, smile, and sweat all at
the same time, that is definitely a
sport," said Alaysha Williams.
Many of our cheerleaders
couldn't wait to get to High School
so they could cheer for the
"Hornets". The squad definitely
stepped up and did a great job!!!
Not only have the cheerleaders
worked hard to pep up our
students, and encourge our teams,
but they also did a great job of
raising money for the victims of

The Tennis Team
had an incredible
season, as this was
the first year we have
had wins. In fact they
placed 2nd in the City

named 2nd best team
in Indianapolis! There

they all played very
well. Matt Demmary

"Starting in 6th grade at Howe, it was my
dream to get a LaCrosse Team started. I
started off talking to gym teachers and friends
of mine. Different people gave me alot of
support and ideas on how to get this kicked
off. For 2 years I looked for a sponsor. In 8th
grade I met Miss Flisparat who decided to be
our sponsor. We spoke to companies to get
equipment for the team. Then we sent out
flyers and made announcements. This year we
started a LaCrosse Club. We had several
interested people who attended meetings on
a regular basis, where we discussed how to
play LaCrosse and praticed the game.
It is my hope that as people-learn about
LaCrosse and our club, we will soon have a
LaCrosse team and compete against other
schools." -Aaron Kamp

With a lot of work to do, the Hornet wrestling team went to work early
and were put through challenging, painful, and emotional practices. By
the time the first match rolled around the team was in good shape and
everyone was ready!
Since the school's wrestling program was so young, many people
around the league expected our wrestlers to be inexperienced and easy to
beat. However, due to good coaching (by coach Young and coach Brown),
and great leaders like Lamont Mayfeild and Joshua Kyner, the newbie's
were able to learn from example !
The team competed well in most of the tournaments ! Joshua
Kyner won the city tounament at weight class 152. Also Lamont
Mayfield and Joshua Kyner won the IPSAC Conference tournament.
Luroy Brewer and Calleton Gonsalez both placed third and Seth Julian
Even though the team was young, they still had heart. Watch out,
our team is coming up, and soon we will be one of the best in the city.

Students our age dont usually think about how we can help our school once we
graduate! Our focus is on getting to graduation, then moving on! Little do we
realize how many people are helping us along the way!
The Alumni Association is a group of loyal Howe Graduates who
work each year to help current Howe students! Not only do they donate money
toward College Scholarships, but they also volunteer their time at many Howe
events. Charlotte McLane and her husband Art are a couple of our most
dedicated volunteers! You can find the two of them working hard at almost all of
our varsity games!
The Alumni Association did something special for our graduating class-
They generously contributed enough money to brighten up our Senior yearbook
pages with COLOR!!! We truly appreciate all that they do for our school!
